It’s been a while since we’ve had a night out, so we’re teaming up with State for a one-off gig. Come see Le Galaxie, The Ambience Affair & Feed The Bears at the Mercantile on Friday June 18th.
Here’s what State have to say about it:
Following May’s riotous night of high volume hardcore in tandem with the Richter Collective, the State vs… gigs continues with a collaboration with the acclaimed Thumped.com – for over ten years now one of the country’s most passionate supporters of Irish music.
Representing State we have Le Galaxie, currently in the midst of a extensive Irish and UK tour. We’ve described them as ‘wholesome and gorgeous’ in the past and while the first part may be up for debate the second certainly isn’t.
Thumped, meanwhile, offer The Ambience Affair. Having released their Patterns EP earlier this year, the duo are returning to play a series of special of dates over the summer.
Each month’s gig will also feature an ‘Introducing…’ slot and June sees Feed The Bears doing the honours. Brand new on the Dublin scene, FTB have a track on the current Popical Island compilation. A thrilling combination of various pop and lo-fi influences, we love them and think you will too.
State vs Thumped The Mercantile Friday 18th June Le Galaxie The Ambience Affair Feed The Bears Bands from 10pm, admission free
